BSR at COP28

COP28 will take place in Dubai, UAE from November 30 to December 12, bringing together key business, government, and civil society leaders at a critical moment for both people and our planet. Tensions between optimism and pessimism on climate change will be on full display at the event. While the Paris Agreement has “driven near-universal climate action," we are still a long way off from holding global warming to 1.5°C and mitigating the most harmful effects of climate change.

Join BSR’s delegation at COP28, where we will be focused on the role of business in addressing issues like just transition, climate justice, net-zero transformation, accountability for non-state actor commitments ahead of the global stocktake in 2025, nature, and the phase-out of fossil fuels.
